The Tallahasseean began publication on June 1, 1885. Soon thereafter, it merged with another Tallahassee newspaper, the Land of Flowers. Edited and published by R. Don McLeod, it was called the Weekly Tallahasseean and Land of Flowers. Between 1888 and 1891, the paper assumed the title of the Weekly Tallahasseean . New ownership seems to have occasioned the name change. The Weekly Tallahasseean was published first by John G. Collins and then by John C. Trice. Some accounts suggest that the Weekly Tallahasseean was continued by the Tallahassee Weekly Capital in 1905. In any case, the Weekly Tallahasseean appears to have ceased publication in that year. Because there are several runs available in Florida libraries and because Tallahassee is the seat of Florida’s state government, the Weekly Tallahasseean is frequently consulted by researchers.

This Charge Against Us Has
No Merit


And Our Facilities in that Respect are
Many reckless and some ludicrous
statements are being made in the
hope of bolstering up the allegation
that Tallahassee is too inaccessible to
the people of the State to longer re-
main the seat of government.
As to this cry of inaccessibility,
Tallahassee is no more inaccessible
today than heretofore. Her trans-
portation facilities are ample. Cer-
tainly the only persons who could
possibly complain of Tallahassee's,
inaccessibility as the State Capital are
the people of Peninsular Florida, ana'
they have two daily trains to Talla-
hassee, both carrying mails. In this
case the argument of inaccessibility
is without merit, and is proved to ie-
so by another admission contained on
page 7 of the first booklet sent out by
the Jacisonville Capital Association.
It is there truthfully said:
"Practically all of the State's busi-
ness is done through the mails."
?obody is complaining of Talla-
hassee's mail facilities, which are ad-
mirably arranged for the expeditious
handling of State House correspond-
ence. Experience has shown that
when the people of Florida have any
business requiring their personal
presence at their Capital, they go
there, and on their trip end during
their stay they find every conve
nience and ac-ommodation desired.
The fact is, Florida is so shaped
that there is no city which can be
said to be very accessible to all
parts of the State-for instance, to
such widely separated places -s Pen-
sacola, Key West and Ferriandina.
The people best qualified to pass upon
Tallahassee's accessibility or in-
accessibiiity are those who have bus-
iness with the State departtnents
located there, and, excepting ft few
living in cities now seeking the Cap-
ital, these people are not. complain-
ing about Tallahassee's location and
transportation facilities.
The centre of Florida's population
at present is not known; but even
though '1'allahassee may not be as
near tho centre as she once was, is
that sufficient reason for throwing
away the very valuable State prop-
erty in Tallahassee and piling up> a
tremendous additional public debt
and tax* burden? Is it not just as
foolish as it would be foli h t(? talk
about the National Goveriruent

in Washington and moving the Na-
tional Capital to Omaha. E-isting
facts and conditions render tht cry
of inaccessibility as an object(m to
Tallahassee remaining the Stat'ap-
ital frivolous and impotent--w ihout
weight in forming the decision the
thoughtful voter.
By What Measure Judge e?

are supporting Tallahassee a' the
State Capital are subsidized." "The

The way In which some artists can
distort features without making them
unrecognizable Is certainly very re-
markable. Thomas Nast possessed
this faculty to an extraordinary degree
and he had a. very peculiar way of
adding new faces to his mental phb-
tograph gallery. When a fresh sub-
ject would arise in politics, for in-
stance, he would invent some pretext
to call upon him at his office or house
and hold him in conversation as long
as possible, studying his features.
When he took his departure he would
purposely leave his cane. Once outside
Nast would make a hasty pencil sketch
on a carId and would usually find that
his memory was deficient as to some
detail He would then return, ostensi-
bly for the cane. and another look at
the victim would enable him to per-
feet his sketch. After that he had the
man forever.
When Joe Keppler was alive he used
to make frequent trips to Washington

whom he wanted to draw. He was

Murat Halstead. the great journalist
of wartimes, went to General William
T. Sherman's hendauarters once for
the "latest news from the front." IHal-
stead was armed with many fine in-
troductory letters, but decided to rely
mainly on one g veun him by Thomas
Ewing, Sherman's brother-in-law. He
found the general and presented
Ewing's letter. The general opened
it somewhat impatiently, read a few
lines, folded it and said:
"Ah, you come from Ewing. and you
desire to have 'all the latest news.'
the 'next probable move' of our army,
eh? Well, there's a train leaving this
town for Cincinnati at 2 o'clock.
Here, take this ticket, and step over
there and get your dinner, and then
get on that train."
"Well, but, General Sherman"- be-
gan the newspaper man. But Sherman
Saved him off.
"Go over and get a good dinner; we
have plenty and always strive to tre.:t
our friends well. But be sure youu
don't miss that 2 o'clock train!" And
Halstead wisely obeyed.
A L!ncoln StoP;.
The Rev. Mr. Alcott of Elgin. Ills.,
one of Abraham Lincoln's Springfield
acquaintances, tells of seeing him com-
ing away from church unusually early
one Sunday morning. "The sermon
could not have been more than half
way through." says Mr. Alcott. "His
son. T ad,' was slung across his left
arm like a pair of saddlebags, and
Lincoln was striding along with long
and deliberate steps toward home.
"On one of the street corners he en-
countered q group of his fellow towns-
men. Lincoln anticipated the question
which was about to be put by the
group, and, Vtking his figure of speech
from practices with which they were
only too faxnl:ar, said, 'Gentlemen, I
entered this zolt. but he kicked around
so 1 had to withdraw him.'"

The Lasiest Man.
The laziest man in North America
discovered himself the other evening
in the swell bachelor apartments not
far from Lafayette square where he
, lives. He was lying on a couch in his
lounging room, smoking a cigar, when
'the cigar went out-that is to say,
the fire at the end of the cigar depart-
ed. The man raised himself on one
arm with great effort, and snapped the
messenger bell that was *Installed over
the couch. Then he reclined and wait-
ed. After about ten minutes there was
a knock at the door, and a messenger
boy entered.
"D'jou ring. sir?" asked the boy.
"Yes, son." said the laziest man in
the western hemisphere. "Just gimme
a match off that table there, will you?"
The, tloy handed the man on the
couch a match and waited. The man
relightId his cigar and smoked on.
"D'jou want me to go somewhere,
sir?" asked the boy, fidgeting.
"No. that's all," said the man. "Take
that half dollar on the table."
Then the boy went out, grinning.
That man ought to be on some gov-
ernment "commission" to investigate
something somewhere. Washington

One of Mourt'. Outbreaks.
Mozart, being vuce on a visit at Mar-
Beilles Went incognito to hear tie per-
formance of his "Villanella ILpita."
He had reason o be tolerably well
satisfied, till, in tLe '_idst of the prin-
cipal aria, the'or':-wetra, through some
error in the copyii.- of the score,
sounded a D natural where the com-
poser had written D sharp. This sub-
situt'on did not injure the harmony,
Lut gave a commmouplace character to
the phrase, and obbeured the sentiment
of the composer.
Mozart no sooner heard it than he
started up vehemently, and, from the
middle of the pit. cried out In a voice
of thunder: "Will you play D sharp.
you wretches?"
The sensation produced In the theater
may be imagined. The actors were
astounded, the lady who was singing
stopped short, the orchestra followed
her example, and the audience, with
k-ud exclamations, demanded thie ex-
unulsiso of the olfender. was ac-
cordingly seized, and required tp name
himselC. IIH did so. and at the nami-
of Mozart the clamor .umbsided, and
was succeeded by shouts of applause
from all sides.
It was insisted that the opera should
be recommeiced. Mozart was install-
ed in the orchestra. and directed the
whole performance. 'IThis time the I)
sharp was played in its proper phc,
and the mu.,sician.s flh'.tselves were

A Famons Duel.
A duel was fought in 'Te.i:ls by Alex-
ander Shott and ohn S. 'Nott. Nott
was shot and Shott was not In this
case it is better to be Shott than Nott.
There was a rumor that Nott was not
shot, but Shott avows that he was not,
which proves either that the shot Shott
shot at Nott was not shot or that Nott
was shot notwithstanding.
I may be made to appear on trial
that the shot Shott shot shot Nott or, as
accidents with firearms are frequent. It
may be possible that the shot Shott
shot shot Shott himself, when the
whole affair would resolve Itaelf into
its original element, and Shott would
be shot and Nott would be not.
We think, however, that the shot
Shott shot shot. not Shott. but Nott.

A Short Lesson on the Meaning of a
Familiar Word.
Disease is the opposite of ease. Web-
ster defines disease as "lack of ease, un-
easiness, trouble, vexation, disquIet."
It is a condition due to some derange-
ment of the physical organism. A vast
majority of the "di3-ease" from which
people suffer is due to impure blood.
Disease of this kind is cured by Hood's
Sarsaparilla which purifies, enriches and
vitalizes the blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla
cures scrofula, salt rheum, pimples and
all eruptions. It tones the stomach and
creates a goodappetite, and it gives vigor
and vitality to the whole body. It re-
versee the condition of things, giving
health, comfort and "ease" in place cf
The SIn Eater.
One of the most important figures at
a Gaelic funeral of the old style is the
sin eater. It fails to his lot to con-
sume all the sins resting on the soul of
the dead, and thereby enable the latter
to rest easy in his grave.
In remote Wales and the highlands
of Scotland a funeral is not always
complete without this functionary. He
is necessarily a poor, unfortunate per-
son, for under happier circumstances
he could not be persuaded to accept the
responsibility of his post, and his part
in the ceremony is taken seriously by
himself and everybody else.
A loaf of bread and a jug of beer are

laid upon the corpse. These are sym-
bolice of sins committed during life.
The sin eater is introduced and with
much solemnity eats the bread and
drinks the beer. As he is frequently a
hungry man with a well developed
taste for malt liquors, the part is usual-
ly played with zest a little out of keep-
ing with the dreadful nature of the
obligation assumed, for it is firmly be-
lieved that in thus eating and drinking
the sin eater actually burdens his soul
with the sins of the deceased.-Kansas
City Independent.

the Capital removal contest. The
cat in questions was aft absolutely
correct photo of the Capitol building
as truly represented as the photog-
rapher's camera is capable of mak-
ifig it. It was not changed one ioto,
in any manner whatever. The East
Floridian is welcome to all the glory
of "fathering" such statements.

In another column of this issue
will be found a letter from Hon.
Frank Clark, in which he seeks, and
doubtless accomplishes--in his own
estimation-the annihilatfou, figura-
tively speaking, of the editor of the
TALLAHASSEEAN. The effect might
have been more perceptible had he
not resorted to subterfuge instead of
making a plain statement, such as
was asked for.
We, and all the people, understand
that two voting places are necessary
to carry out the convention's instruc-
tions, but in all other respects we
see no reason for laying particular
stress upon the two campaign feat-
ure. Certainly the expenses of one
or the other could--economically
directed-be greatly diminished by
reason of the other at the same time
and place.
We have done some figuring, and
to save us, we have been unable to
find a necessity for more than 84,000
(in round numbers), -allowing mile-
age and per diem for the inspectors,
return of poll lists, boxes, etc., and
an outside figure for all items conse-
quent to a primary in this section of
the State. However, further refer-
ence to this matter now can accom-
plish no good (as the chairman has,
by implication at least, refused a de-
tailed statement at this time) and
we have no desire to create strife
in the party by a fruitless contro-
versy. .
The insinuation that the former
State Committee went begging to
the railroads and the National
r Committee, is certainly rich. We are
r informed, however, by a member of
the 1896 committee that 82,000 were
received from the National Commit-
tee, *1,000 spent in a perfectly le-
I gitimate way, (*500 being given
1 each of the two Congressional
I Committees), and the remainder
f -deposited in a Jacksonville bank
e (which failed) and papers show-
- ing same turned over to the present
t committee. This is further shown
- by the following from the Times-
e Union and Citizen of August 1st:
e "The Secretary (of the State Conm-
- mittee) reported the receipt from J.
t D. Beggs, Treasurer of the preceding
s Executive Committee, of the funds
. remaining unexpended from that
- Committee. This was in the form
e of a check for 8495.28 and a certify.
d cate of deposit in a defunct bank,
- which is now in the hands of a re.
t ceiver, for a total sum-of 81,057.11

Among the mass of misstatements
of facts made by the hired advo-
cates of the Jacksonville Capital As-
sociation is the one that the bill to
remove the Capital Qnly failed by
two votes of passing thie last session
of the Legislature. The true facts
are, that the bill never reached the
Senate at all, and; it was weV-
known. that it could mnot have com-
manded a majority in that -body,
much less the required three-fifths.

If the Capital had' been at Jack-
sonville during the epidemic twelve
years ago were wold public busi-
ness have been ? In his connection,
Dr. Porter's report of last xear, (page
236), shows the dea(h rate for that
year in Duval county to have been
32.57. Leon county same year 7.09.
The same report shows (page 232)
death rate for five. years-Duval
29.74-Leon 4.01. This speaks vol-
umes for Tallahassee. .

Mr. D. B. Meginnisa, of this city,
who is now in New York, writes
"Uncle Tom" Costa' that he was
there about this time in 1896 and
found no enthusiasm for the Demo-
cratic nominee, W. J. Bryan. But
it is different now-Bryan banners
are everywhere in evidence, and the
enthusiasm for the great paqy lead-
ers everywhere manifest.

Galveston is storm swept and hun-
dreds of her peoplesare said to be in

that five hundred lives were lost by

the source from which funds come
is by no means an indication of
economic distribution. The distri-
bution itself, and the amount thereof
is better evidence on that score.
"The strongest argument against
removal is that it would cost the tax-
-payers of Florida a million dollars-
Now, let as examine this argument by
probing it with a few questions.
First is a new Capital building nec-
essary? lor an answer we will quote
from; the Weekly TALLAIIASSE AX in
its issue of August 30th. In com-
menting upon lion. Frank Clark's
DeLAnd speech, favoring the removal
of the Capital to Jacksonville, the
TAL.AIIASSEEAN says: 'It (the Cap-
itol building) may be far from ade-
quate for the accommodation of the
SLate's officials, and the storage of
the State's valuable records.' Here
we have the testimony of a gentle-
man against his own interest, to thb
effect that a new Capitol building is
a necessity. Shall we reject such
testimony? Certainly not."
The above from the Indian River
Advocate is certainly very staitlirg,
to say the least. The readers of the
IAI.LAIIASSEEAN will readily under-'
stand that no such statement has
ever been made by us, and when the
opposition resorts to misquoting this
paper on the subject of Capital re-
moval they are certainly hard up for
The language above attributed to
us is extracted from an editorial
quoted from the Savannah Morning
News which, as a whole, was very
creditable to Tallahassee. It was
never intended to convey the dis-
torted idea it is made to subserve
here. This would have been shown
by quoting enough of the article to
_get its meaning, but that does not
suit Capital removalists. Like drown-
ing men, they catch at straws.

Here we have an illustration of the

them another who coal'd not win in
an open contest, but happens to pos-
sesss more of this Worlds goods.
Such may also be the cage in many
instances in the State campaign.

Last week we -referred to the high
handed way in which the Campaign
Committee, presided over by the
lion. Frank Clark, is precluding the
possibility of a poor man running for
a State office at the November pri-
mary, and this week a case has come
under our observation which illus-
trates so fully these extravagant
ideas that we quote at length
from it. In a letter dated 10th
insist published in the T.-U. & C.,
Harry Hartley, the nominee of
the Duval County Convention
for Clerk of the Criminal Court of
Record, says:
'At a meeting of the Executive
Committee a resolution was adopted
requiring candidates to pay their as-
sessments by August 15, 1900, or
their failure to pay would be consid-
ered. as a resignation. "It was my
failure to pay the assessment that has
been considered and given out by the
committee as my resignation, they
having received no written or verbal
statement from me that I desired to
withdraw from the ticket. I repeat, I
did not resign, nor have I ever had
the slightest idea of doing so.
"I made an effort to secure the

In summing up the facts relative to
Capital removal, the Sowannee Dem-
ocrat says: "The only thing against
her is the statement that the build-
ings are going into decay and are
absolutely dangerous to life
and unsafe for the keeping of the
records." And this statement is ab-
solutely without foundation. There
is not a more substantial building in
all the State. This fact is recognized
and the State is given; its benefits by
the insurance companies-people who
do not accept statements but investi-
(gate such matters.

I'll agree to take charge of the parade."
"But I object to that." said Horatio.
"Hevin originated this idea, 1 think it's
fur me to ride on horseback at the
head of the purcession."
There was a painful pause, and theo
Abner Jones, who was in fireman's uni-
form, jumped off the counter and said:
"There shouldn't be no jealousy
about this thing, Horatio would look
purty fine on his spotted horse, and
the deacon would be no slouch in his
cocked hat, but if there's to be any
feeling over it I'll take the job off their
hands. As I'm foreman of the fire com-
pany it comes in my line anyhow."'
"I don't propose to give up my rights
fur nobody," said Horatio.
"And I'm thinking I'm the man to
boss things." added the deacon.
"I don't want to charge anybody
with hevin too much cheek." said
Squar Henshaw. "but it do look a
leetle strange to me to see the way cer-
tain folks want to crowd to the front
on public occasions. If there is a
pureesslon. it's got to be headed by a
man who knows bow to boss things
,and can't be rattled. I bossed the
parade the last time we had a Fourth
of July, and you may remember that
the newspapers said I managed It bet-
ter than any we ever had."
'"I'll allow that the squar did .fairly
well." said Enos Williams as he shut
up his jackknife and got off the sugar
bar'l. "but there are several other folks
in this town of Jericho. For instance.
I'm here myself. When anything has
happened during the last 20 years, I've
bin pushed behind the currant bushes,
as it was, and some one else has car-
ried off the honors. I'm co min to the
front on this occasion or know the
reason why."
"Why. Enos. you don't purtend that
you kin boss a purcession, do you?"
asked the deacon.
"Of course I kin. Why not?"
"It appears to me." said Silas Lap-
ham as he stood out and rubbed his
hands together, "that.we are not work-
In in complete harmony in this matter.
It will be the event of the century.; It

"For five weeks I lived on cold water,
so to speak," writes a man who suffered
terribly from indigestion.
He could hardly k3ep anything on his.
stomach. What stayed, wasn't properly
digested and gave him terrible pangs.
This is not an uncommon case. Dys-
peptics don't get enough nourishment.
They are generally thin and weak.
They may eat enough, but they don't
digest enough. Much of what they eat
turns into poison. If this keeps on

Curious Meteorological' Conditions
of the Island of Saghalien.
Saghalien, off the eastern coast of
Siberia. presents a very curious anoin-.
aly of climate. The island is bathed
by two cold ocean currents, and in
winter nothing protects it against the
icy northwest winds coming from Si-
beria. At the sea level the snow falls
continually and stays on the ground
till the end of May, and the seashore is
very cold. Farther Inland, however,
especially as we go higher up. the
climate is modified-just the opposite
to what is observed elsewhere. It has
often been observed in Siberia and in
central Europe that in winter the cold
is greater in the plains and the valleys
and that the highlands have a sensibly
milder temperature; it is as if the
denser cold air accumulated in the low-
The cold air accumulates in the low
regions of the island, and on the coast
the higher regions have a more elevat-
ed temperature. So it happens that the
lower parts have an arctic vegetation,
while the intermediate altitudes have
the vegetation of a temperate zone,
sometimes subtropical. The birch, the
pine, the fir, abound in the low regions
and form often impenetrable forests.

What Ruasia Is Like.
In Russia everything is large, and
everything is loud. Moscow is like an
immense village, and everything in it
is built broad, not high, because there
is so much space to cover. The public
squares, unpaved and surrounded by a
little rim of cobbles, are as big as
meadows. The arcades and passages,
with their cellars below, their shops
above, their glass roofs. nae so enor-
mous that they could hold tae Passage
des Panoramas and the Burlington
Arcade and the galleries at Milan with-
out filling more than a corner of them.
Colors shriek and flame; the Mus-
covite eyes sees only by emphasis and
by contrast; red is completed either by
another red or by a bright blue. There
are no shades, no reticencess, no mod-
ulations. The restaurants are filled
with the din of vast mechanical or-
gans, with drums and cymbals; a great
bell clashes against a chain on all the
trams to clear the road; the music
which one hears is a ferocity of brass.
The masons who build the houses
build in top boots, red shirts and pink
trousers; the houses are painted red
or green or blue; the churches are like
the temples of- savage idols, tortured
into every unnatural shape and colored
with glaring color. Baire feet, osier
sandals and legs swathed in rags pass
to and fro anmong the top boots-of the
middle classes, the patent leather boots
of the upper classes, like the inner
savagery of a race still so near barbar-
ism, made evident in that survival of
the footgear of primitive races.-Satur-

Glorious News
Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Washita, L T. He writes: "Four bot-
tles of Electric Bitters has cured Mrs.
Brewer of scrofula, which had caused
her great suffering for years. Terrible
sores would break out on her head and
face, and the best doctors could give no
help; but her cure is complete and her
health is excellent." This shows what
thousands have proved-that Electric
Bitters is the best blood purifier known.
It's the supreme remedy for eczema,
better, salt rheum, ulcers, boils and run-
ning sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys
and bowels, expels poisonous substances,
helps digestion, builds up the strength.

One day when calling upon Gambet-
ta-I found him vastly amused over a
vMt which he had received a few
minutes previously from the late Gen-
era Meredith Read, who for a number
of years was United States envoy at

had been a perfect strange to the

hand a veolme entitled '"Men of the

he op ad, without saying a word, and
laid on Gambetta's desk before at-
tempting to greet him or to explain the
purpose of his call.
Then, pointing to a eoeumn which
contained a very eulogistic biograph-
1eal notice of himself, he exclaimed,
"Kindly read that," and when Gam-
betta, who read English with the ut-
most facility, had, in compliance with
the request, cast his eye over the pne
In question, General Read rose from
his chair, and with a bow to Gambetta
pointed to himself, exclaiming in tones*
of pardonable pride, "C'est moL"
Then, and not until then, did he ex-
tend his hand to the great tribune,
who, having meanwhile risen from his
chair, expressed his pleasure at mak-
ing the acquaintance of so distingulsh-
ed an officer, who had rendered such
valuable services to the United States.
Gambetta informed me that In the
whole of his long experience of public
life he had never known a man to intro-
duce himself in so delightfntly original
a manner.-Critic.

At one of his fantous little dinners
a prominent professionatman of Wash-
ington was greatly pleased with the
salad, as were also his guests. Evi-
dently it was partly meat and partly
vegetable, but the flavor was new, dis-
tinct and undeterminable. This was so
faint that one guest declared "It's not
a taste at all, only a smelL"
At length some one suggested that
the chef be asked for the recipe, upo6
which the host remarked:
"My man greatly dislikes being asked
for recipes. On this occasion, however,
his vanity may overcome him if we
tell how greatly we have enjoyed the
dinner, and the salad in particular.
At any rate, well see."
The Frenchman soon appeared, and
was visibly affected, not to say elated.
